The most important fix would be to annotate all outdated ones properly. 
Search engines apparently love our outdated content and we've seen 
examples on this list recently too.

The only browser bookmark should be
https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/Building_Guide_AOO
and the rest should be easily reachable from there.

I've apparently hidden it very well! I had to send the link a dozen 
times to this list. Here it is again:
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/openoffice/devtools/build-scripts/

(it's best to use it as a link in the build-related wiki pages).

Regards,
   Andrea.
